    FINALLY! FINALLY! FINALLY! I read this when I was 17 and fell in love with the book and Grisham’s writing. I said it would be the next movie when I finished it(little early on that prediction). The Testament 2011?!?

    Just finished the book last night – so many possible scenarios came to mind at the end. Can’t wait to see the movie although I don’t agree with any of the post pics for who should play who. Anyway, I was afraid to read the last chapter but when I did I thought one of two things must have happened! Not to mention – I was involved in a semi-heated debate since I believe everyone got what they needed, deserved, or wanted at the end but not everyone believes that.

    I have read the book several times, it is just like watching your favorite movie over and over. I would love to see who is going to play Patrik in the movie!

    Way to go John Grisham, always the best.
